Fortune is the warm-tones sister of the Fame palette which I already wrote a review of (read here). But even though Fame is super neutral, Fortune is not. It’s definitely shades here you can use for everyday looks, but this is much more than just a regular warm-toned neutral palette. This one has golds, warm browns and berry shades in a nice mix.
The cover matches Fame, and when you put them next to each other they make a complete picture. The outside match the inside a bit better with the Fortune palette than what it did with the Fame palette, but I still think the color story on the outside could have been a bit different. I just expect something completely different when I look at them compared to what you find on the inside. Just a personal preference off course, and other than that the cover is cute.
Inside you get 16 shades, so this is so far the biggest palette size Colourpop has released (but I am sure that will chance in the future. Colourpop release so much they are bound to suddenly make a large palette in true Morphe style, lets just hope they can actually add some colors to it when it happens, because no one need 35 shades of what’s basically 4 different browns. This palette has more has a nice composition of your basic mattes, rich metallic and warm berry shades. It’s absolutely a complete palette when it comes to color composition and you can easily create a large variation of looks. This is a nice stand/alone palette, and if you are into berries and golds this would be a good choice.
Quality is the well known usual Colourpop quality. They really do make excellent mattes and metallic shades. All shades in this palette is good. The only one that I felt needed a little help with a damp brush was “Miser” the duochrome. I felt that it needed a spritz of setting spray on the brush to get the shine and full potential of the pigment. the berry shades blend very easily despite being a color that could be harder that your regular brown. If you like the Colourpop eyeshadows formula already, I am sure you will find this one just as satisfying.
There is a nice mix of mattes, metallics and a satin finish shade. The nice mixture of finished is also one of the things that help making this very cohesive. I didn’t miss any particular shades when I was working with this palette. I felt I had every shade I needed here.
For 22$ you get 16 shades of the usually great Colourpop quality (but no mirror) so if you are a fan of the color story in this palette it’s both a good and affordable palette in my opinion. At least I am happy to have picked it up!
